Seventeen years after it was recorded in London in 1995, “Heaven Said” by Tanzanian pop singer Joett is officially released on CD nationwide, and digitally around the world via Island Def Jam Digital Distribution, USA for iTunes, Amazon MP3, Rhapsody, eMusic and Napster on March 12th 2012. And on the same day, “Afro Lover”—his Swahili influenced smash hit single of 1996—gets a new lease of life with a highly anticipated 2012 re-release. With two singles released simultaneously on the same day, Joett’s musical comeback—after “I Could Never Live (Without Your Love)” initially released digitally on December 20th 2010; and later on CD on Valentine’s Day 2011; culminating with a 70s Disco Remix of the same song debuting on radio on October 23rd 2011—continues.
Produced by multi-million selling British record producer Tambi Fernando, who’s sold over five million records and worked with British Queen Of Soul Mica Paris, Phil Fearon And Galaxy, Pepsi And Shirley, Nevada, Omar, Seal, Switch, Prince Of Bhangra Sukhbir and a host of other world famous artists, the two singles—even by today’s standards in technological advancement—are at the cutting edge of production and will likely be appreciated for years to come. Whilst Heaven Said draws inspiration from 80s groove and contains elements of Soul II Soul’s late 80s material drum pattern, Afro Lover on the other hand exudes a mid 90s techno-house tempo reminiscent of highly successful acts of the time Haddaway, Black Box, and Zimbabwe’s biggest musical export and Queen Of Rave Rozalla… to name but a few.
Based in Dar es salaam, Joett is a member of the American Society Of Composers, Authors & Publishers (ASCAP); a vocal coach, TV personality and presents retro radio show Boogie—featuring 70s Disco, 80s Pop and Nu Disco on Times 100.5 FM every Sunday from 6pm.
Joett’s new singles are distributed nationwide—across Tanzania—by Business Times, Majira and SPOTIstarehe. This is the first time a Tanzanian media house has gotten involved in the marketing and distribution of a musical work by a local artist. With the support of the public, it is hoped that this initiative will continue to lend support to local talent and to stimulate growth for Tanzania’s music industry.
